UltraTile hosts biggest training day ever!

On 12th January 2023, UltraTile welcomed 23 members of the Tilers Community and hosted their biggest training day ever.

Attendees began their External Tiling Academy Day by joining UltraTile’s Martin Pouncey for a morning of classroom learning. Martin, who has over 30 years of experience working in the tiling industry, took the tilers through the theory of external tiling whilst giving them some great tips on how to successfully install external porcelain tiles.

After a delicious lunch, everyone headed down to UltraTile’s bespoke training area for a practical demonstration of their external tiling system. During the 45 minute demonstration, everyone had the opportunity to get hands on experience and gain confidence fixing and grouting tiles externally.

Everyone then headed outside for an exclusive tile cutting demonstration from the team at RUBI UK and finished with a tour of UltraTile’s world-class manufacturing facilities to see where their market-leading adhesives and grouts are produced.

There were some amazing prizes up for grabs on the day with RP Tiling Services walking away with the top prize. No one left empty handed though and everyone walked away with freebies from RUBI and an UltraTile goody bag.

The day was a huge success and UltraTile received some fantastic feedback from the tiling community.

“The demonstrations and training was very informative and encouraging of getting hands on. Big thanks to them for bringing this to members, yet still supplying innovative and competitively priced products.” Sam Hoffman, Founder of Tilers Community.

“I personally took a lot of invaluable information on the day that is certainly going to go a long way in the future. Priceless!’ RP Tiling Services.

“What a brilliant day. What was taught has changed my perspective on external tiling, a big thank you to all the staff at Instarmac.” Adrian O’Clements.

“I found the theory really useful and then the practical demonstration to back it up has helped my confidence with outdoor tiling no end. Overall a fantastic day for me.” Michael Moore

On the success of the day, Lynne Flavell, Campaign Manager at UltraTile, commented: “We are really proud to support the tiling community and their career development. It was great to see everyone so enthused about the training and getting hands on with the materials. We had a great day and look forward to welcoming everyone back to UltraTile again soon.”
